I’ve had these Black Diamond Ergo Cork trekking poles for over 5 years and what can I say, they work great and are there for you when you need them, which is every step up and down. My first adventure with these were in Yosemite and definitely helped take stress off my knees.
When I bought these, I was was just starting out hiking and didn’t want to spend too much with carbon poles, which are lighter weight but also more fragile. And over the years, I’ve only come to enjoy these poles more because they fuller come apart, allowing for packing in my backpacks a bit easier.
Reasons why (or why not) to get these:
- At $90, they don’t break the bank. If you’re rich, then my ball means go be a baller and get the carbon trekking poles to save on weight.
- “Flick Lock” versus the poles that fold up onto themselves. I like the idea that I can take them all apart.
- Black Diamond is name brand and a trusted brand.
